Title: A multi-wavelength, high-contrast contact radiography system for the study of low density aerogel foams

Abstract

A multi wavelength, high contrast contact radiography system has been developed to characterize density variations in ultra-low density aerogel foams. These foams are used to generate a ramped pressure drive in materials strength experiments at the National Ignition Facility (NIF) and require precision characterization in order to reduce errors in measurements. The system was used to characterize density variations in carbon and silicon based aerogels to ~10.3% accuracy with ~30 μm spatial resolution. The system description, performance and measurement results collected using a 17.8 mg/cc carbon based JX–6 (C 20H 30) aerogel are discussed in this manuscript.
